Body Art

Body Art, as defined in NEHA’s Body Art Model Code, means body piercing, tattooing, branding, scarification, or cosmetic tattooing. Environmental health professionals inspect and regulate body art establishments.

  • Body Art Model Code and Annex
  • Body Art Facility Inspector Training
  • Body Art Inspection Job Aids
  • Body Art Policy Statements
